    Hadn't been here in a while, but it did not dissappoint. Our server (I believe Emily?) was a personable and attentive (even having the chef prepare birthday dessert with their "chosen" ages). It made for a wonderful celebration.

    It was a birthday celebration. We were sat on time but then waited 45mins before anyone came to take a drink order. Then we ordered appetizers & our dinner the dinner came out long before the appetizers. Now let’s get to the food it was the worst $40 filet that was over cooked & absolutely no seasoning. I would never recommend this place to anyone. Over priced & terrible service.

    Lovely wine and cocktails to start. Great appetizers- we had spinach dip and Buffalo shrimp. Server and chef helped me make 2 dishes gluten free and double checked ingredients. We had good meat main plates, I had braised beef with caramelized onions and the side of grits were best I’ve had, not sloppy- they kept a dome form like rice or mash. Very nice. Brussels n bacon jam was amazing. Husband had ribeye, mash, n Brussels and said was delish. We ended with chocolate mousse mmmmmm and bread pudding mmmmmm. Topped off with coffees and a double whiskey- perfect. Quality matched bill. Great service.

    The food was delicious and the restaurant was beautiful. With that said, the service was very slow. My mom and I were sat down and left for over 10 minutes. We had to ask for our server. We then ordered and got our appetizer pretty quickly and after getting our meal (brought out by another server), our server never came back to check on us. We had to ask another server, yet again, to get our waitress. I also overheard a lady saying to a waiter “I’d like to pay for my beer and leave bc my waitress never came back”. Our waitress was friendly but she never checked back in on us and that really bothered me.

    We usually love eating there, but this time the service not good and the food was cold. It seems like it was sitting for a while. The chicken fried steak was stringy and tough. Ordered mimosas and they came out late and flat. Usually this is one of my favorite spots, but I was not happy this time.

    Great food with huge portions. Had a great burger, The Byrd, and the rosemary and parmesan fry mix had 3 different kind of potatoes in it and the seasoning was delicious. Great drinks. I had a smoked old fashioned which was really top level. My wife had the cedar plank salmon which was perfectly cooked with a huge serving of outstanding Brussel sprouts and cheese grits. Definitely will go again next time we're in Galveston.

    Good was good, service lacking. Took 15 mins and asking to get a server to even come to the table. Ordered a second beer, and it took so long and the server was so unattentive that they forgot I had already ordered one. Beer finally came after we paid the bill

    The wine pour was a great value, the ambiance was fine, the short ribs were tough. I detected no smoked Gouda in the grits and several of the Brussels sprouts were very charred. The crab crusted redfish was ok. I may come back for the Wagyu burger or hot dog which a lot of people seemed to be enjoying.

    Unsure of what happened between this visit and last years but boy was service not up to par as last years. The delay in getting items for our table or the waiter was a bit long, even the manager seemed a bit un amused or enthusiastic as last years visit. Some of our side items were a bit under cooked or lacked flavor and honestly I am not sure why the app asks if this is a special occasion or not, our anniversary wasn't acknowledged. I know that seems silly but why ask if it really doesn't matter? The ambiance seemed ok but the waitstaff and upstairs flow was a bit off. Maybe we came in on a bad day. We love this location and returned for the specific food items only to be disappointed. We still love ya Galveston Hearsay. :(

    No comments...I was not happy. Took my mom for her bday. Emily was the only waitress there. The hostess was on her phone, she could've refilled drinks, got us silverware, got up off her glutes...Customer service and food was horrible. I think my grand daughters kid chicken was better than my chicken and waffles. No flavor at all. Her tator tots had a fresh rosemary taste- that was the only thing flavorful. I will not recommend to anyone. Emily was the only reason I didn't speak up and escalate my dissatisfaction bc she had a good attitude and smiling. She needs to find a better job where there's better food and team

    As soon as we got seated someone came out to tell us the service and food would be slower tonight. The food was really good, but it was def slow! (We had reservations for 9pm) and it was very crowded still! We all got waters and never got refilled. Would def go back though, just don’t be in a hurry!

    When we got there they couldn’t find my reservation and told us they didn’t have anything because it was booked, after we should the email reservation we got seated but not were I requested bc they had a huge party upstairs and because of that our food didn’t came out till two and a half hours later we got there at 6:30 didn’t start eating till 8:40 unacceptable, food was great but the experience from waiting so long was already a bad one it was my wife’s birthday and it was a disappointment. We know it wasn’t the waitress fault the manager came and spoke with us and he took care of the food, overall wish it was a better way to take care of a huge party and rest of customer too.
